imgNew York, NY (September 6, 2013)—Novation has released its newest product, the Launch Control, a compact controller designed to work alongside Launchpad.

Launch Control can control filters, levels, effects, muting, effects activation and launching clips and scenes through the device’s 16 assignable knobs, eight three colour launch pads, and four function keys.

Intended for use with Novation's Launchpad, Ableton Live and FL Studio, the bus-powered unit is plug and play with built-in mappings. Eight factory templates and eight user templates are available, allowing users to create and save their own control setups.

Launch Control comes with Ableton Live Lite in the box, works with all major music software for Mac and PC and is fully class-compliant, controlling MIDI-compatible software like Ableton Live, Cubase, Reason, Logic and FL Studio without drivers.
